I deleted a column in my InfoPath sharepoint list form, and now when I try and visit the "Workflows" status page from any list item it throws an exception. the logs show this:

System.ArgumentException: Column 'TriageWo' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user. /Lists/Project Initiation at Microsoft.SharePoint.SPFieldCollection.GetFieldByInternalName(String strName, Boolean bThrowException) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflow.GetIStatusAsText(Int32 iStatus) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflow.GetIStatusAsHtml(Int32 iStatus) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflow.GetIStatusAsHtml() at Microsoft.SharePoint.ApplicationPages.WorkflowPage.StrStatus(SPWorkflow wf) at ASP._layouts_workflow_aspx._Render_control11(HtmlTextWriter __w, Control parameterContainer) at System.Web.UI.Control.RenderChildrenInternal(HtmlTextWriter writer, ICollection children) at System.Web.UI.Control.RenderChildrenInternal(H...

  • What if it can't find a field because you deleted it, ON PURPOSE? I have run into this problem for a valid case of deleting a column in a list. Now I cannot access the Workflows status page for that list. – April Drake Dec 4 '13 at 23:43

I killed all running workflows on the list, and was able to see the Workflow Status pages again.
